    You forgot to mention that in those 4 games, Hicks as 4 Ks in 17 PAs. That is a 23.5% K rate, which is right between the 26.8% K rate he has in MLB this year and the 20.5% K rate he posted in 2011...

    Trading away valuable prospects who will be in their prime the same years as Buxton and Sano for players who are in their prime now is not a good way to rebuild a franchise.

    I wouldn't worry about yesterday's 0GB:3FB ratio. Gonsalves currently has a 1.56 GB/FB ratio. While that's not stellar, it's pretty good, and would certainly qualify him at least as a moderate GB...
